Creating a Plant Cell Journal
In this lesson, students will create a journal on plant cells.
This lesson is for fifth grade students.
First, you will have the students gather information about plant cells. They can choose a specific area about plant cells or life, or cover all of the areas briefly.
As they read in their science book about plant cells, they will take notes on the important facts.
Then, they will look at their notes and organize them into an outline before they write their journal.
After they have written their outlines, they can write their journal.
Finally, they can make a cover for their journals out of white construction paper. They can draw a cover relating to their project.
When they have finished their cover, they can punch three holes in the front and back pieces of construction paper to fit the holes in their notebook paper.
Then, they can take a piece of yarn and run it through the holes. They can tie the yarn in the center to hold the journal together.
You can grade them on the accuracy of their information they included in their journal.
